Abstract : The purpose of this lab is to show the relationship between displacement, velocity, and acceleration. With the use of a glider, air track, and a computer data collector to record the displacement of the glider, we will be able to graph the glider’s displacement versus time reaching our ultimate goal of determining its velocity. Also by graphing the velocity versus time we will be able to determine the acceleration of this glider. At the end of this experiment we will be able to determine the experimental value and theoretical value of acceleration, and find out our percent different/error.
